squaredance_craftnight

CraftNight Limited Edition 

Hand Turkeys • Live Old Time Music • Square Dancing • Sarsaparilla

  • This Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 from 9pm until midnight or later at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT LIMITED EDITION!!! 
  • Project: Hand Turkeys
  • $2 Processing fee, please
  • $4 Drink Specials: 1.) They Lyla (Whiskey and Ginger Beer) and 2.) Little Britches (Jeremiah Weed Sarsaparilla Whiskey with soda water)
  • Special for YOU: Triple Chicken Foot and Friends play music for you to craft and square dance to, yesireeee!!! 

Our LAST CraftNight of November is a cornucopia of crafting, drinking, dancing and causing an autumn ruckus we’ll remember into winter and spring. Pluckin’ and strummin’ and callin’ and swingin’ will be the likes of Triple Chicken Foot and friends.
That’s right: ACTUAL musicians crammed into the dance floor space, you and people you know and people you meet having unbridled joy careening and laughing while learning/doing the Virginia Reel and other Square Dancing favorites.

Our Craft will be the predominant age-old seasonal classic: Hand Turkeys. Bring your friends and shake your tail feathers!

Did you ever make a hand turkey in school? If you haven’t made one, then we’ve got to get you in here for this rite of passage. If you’ve made plenty, our philosophy is that you can NEVER make enough hand turkeys.

Next week, CraftNight will take a break, Akbar will be hosting “PIE” a sweet and sassy helping of booty-shakin’ music, slices of actual pie and all the partying you can handle before you have to go be respectable the next day at the Thanksgiving table.

See you at the Craft Table,
JP Craft Captain

Project: “Turkey Time” Paper Craft Clock Sculpture

    Wed. November 26th >>> No CraftNight because AKBAR’S “PIE” DANCE PARTY!!!


What time is it? TURKEY TIME, at least that’s what this jaunty paper sculpture says when you look at it and laugh. Any of your friends or relatives who enjoy corny jokes is going to LOVE this thing. It’s a perfect gift. It’s something to talk about. It’s a piece of decor that will compliment your life, or anyone’s life you give it to, it really is just that good. It involves a paper plate, which you can rip off the wall and use as an ACTUAL PLATE in times of emergency.

With this one, I’m going easy on you, it’s simple, it’s direct, there’s not a whole lot of commitment involved.  If you have friends who are scared of crafting, or if you have a date that you want to impress or get to know better while doing something that appears seasonal and also innocuously endearing, this could be for you. It’s the perfect kind of craft for light and airy fun, just pop in and make one, make it a keepsake for yourself or your pals.

This is our second to last CraftNight of November, the week after this it’s hand turkeys and SQUARE DANCING WITH LIVE MUSIC FROM TRIPLE CHICKEN FOOT!!!! And then OMG it’s December! Eeeek!
